Yesterday, I was reading the April 2008 Discover magazine and they had quite a few very intriguing articles. One of which I'd like to share. Well at least the links they listed, lol.
The article discusses Seven ways to be a space tourist. It was written by Stephen Cass. In the article, Cass explains that we are closer then ever to space travel being in reach for everyday folks and no longer just for the best of the best astronauts. As I personally have NO desire to travel into space, I'll settle back and just enjoy the websites. For those of you more brave then me, you can actually go to the sites and book a flight! Good luck to you. Safe flight.
